A commission for the Mystery Plays of Gloucestershire - a well-known concept around the world which tells the story from the beginning of the world, the birth and death of Jesus and the path of damnation. With a cast of 50 and just 4 musicians, the brief was a flavour of Middle Eastern music which provided a variety of moods, textures and colours to support the action on stage.

"The challenge was that each piece could be no longer than 1.5 minutes and had to cover all the expressions of sadness, celebration, impending doom, revelation and so on.

The brief also included a choral works based on the 5 parts of the mass.

Educator

Robert carries his enthusiasm for the skills of playing, technique and performing to adults and private students as a teacher of bass and guitar.


"My teaching is more than just about increasing knowledge of music and instruments. It is helping to inspire and build confidence in the children. For many adults too, these new skills have helped build strong self-awareness and self-confidence and new ambitions."

For his students Robert wants a simple outcome - that they remain passionate about music. He is adamant that a teacher should empower the student with the tools to work out musical problems for themselves rather than be spoon fed or taught short cuts without the necessary underpinning knowledge or understanding.
